While my new album EUSA makes its way into the world I always have plans for the future. I’d like to share them with you.
I am planning to write and record my next album entirely outdoors, in wild spaces around the world.
Next year I will travel the world looking for suitable natural environments — places that are resonant and far away from civilisation — where I can work, letting the wilderness find its into my music.
I will document the writing and recording of the album on this blog.
Yann began his tour by cycling through Norway, crossing from island to island by ferry, bridge and tunnel, covering 1000km in just ten days.
Along the way, Yann and his peloton of musicians played a series of shows, performing at folk festivals and small cafes, as well as putting on impromptu performances for a handful of locals in the great outdoors, with Norway’s spectacular landscape as a backdrop.
The cyclists were accompanied by a film crew who are currently preparing a short film about the Norway cycle adventure. The film is currently at the editing stage and will be available to watch online soon. Sign up to the mailing list below and we will message you as soon as the film becomes available!
On his island home of Ushant Yann Tiersen is converting the old discotheque, which has remained for the last 15 years, into a world class recording studio, venue and a cultural center for the community. It will be called The Eskal.
The building is located on the edge of the main town on the island, overlooking the bay with. Views from the studio’s windows and planned viewing deck will give uninterrupted views of the Celtic sea.
Today the new roof was moved into place, marking a significant step on in this project. Follow the building progress here on the website and the dedicated Eskal Facebook Page.
